France and Spain create joint anti-terrorist teams

France and Spain will create joint cross-border intelligence teams to root out what French President Nicolas Sarkozy called "the cancer of terrorism." Sarkozy and Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero of Spain announced the new teams after a bilateral summit on Thursday, a month after police tracked down two Basque separatists suspected of killing two Spanish officers in southwest France. The agreement foresees the creation of permanent Franco-Spanish intelligence teams charged with fighting terrorism "in all its forms," the French president's office said in a statement.
